On Thursday, June 8, 2023, Cedarcrest High School held its annual Senior Awards Night ceremony at the Riverview School District ESC Assembly Hall in Duvall. This year, more than 250 students, staff, and family members attended the event, celebrating a wide array of achievements from the Cedarcrest Red Wolves’ Class of 2023.

Hosted by Cedarcrest Social Studies teacher Dan Armstrong, the event was an efficient and quick-moving affair, honoring student achievement and recognizing accomplishments in academics, athletics, student leadership, and community service.

In addition, the evening began with the annual presentation of scholarship awards. By the end of the evening, 60 financial scholarships were awarded in the program’s opening portion, with the scholarship process managed by Snoqualmie Valley Dollars for Scholars.

In its eighth year, the Ann Hart Foundation Scholarship for Women Pursuing Careers in Natural Sciences recognizes students who seek to follow a career in science and/or science-related education. The foundation’s $10,000 scholarship was awarded to Elisa Piira.

Two new scholarships were presented by Cedarcrest High School Mathematics teacher Kristin Jongejan, recognizing mathematics and multi-cultural educational interests. Viona Chamasemani (Multi-Cultural) and Sören Spencer (Mathematics) were recognized. Jongejan’s parents were also in attendance to join in honoring the scholarship recipients.

Snoqualmie Valley Dollars for Scholars awarded scholarships to eight seniors this year, including a joint scholarship with Eagle Rock Multi-Age. The recipient names are shared below.

In addition to Scholarship Awards, students were also presented with Honor, Merit, and Leadership Awards, as well as individual departmental awards, recognizing students who were exemplary in those chosen areas of study.

At the local level, community sponsors graciously donated $50,735 through their scholarship programs.
